No - it is not even a solution at all.
If you force people to do something you get bad quality, which doesn't
solve anything.
Really - FreeBSD is as free beer and this is intended.
If you are happy with it and don't want to give something back it is
If you want to complain about the type or quality of free beer you
should help getting it better.
Even bug reporting is helping to get it better, but if someone is
handling your report you should at least be prepared to help in getting
the required informations, otherwise you are just wasting time of
other persons.
